Fourth Annual Martini Festival Sat November 15th
The Annual Martini & Beer Festival in Perdido Key has become one of the most popular events in the Pensacola and Perdido Key area attracting visitors from a broad range of places. The Martini & Beer Festival is hosted by the Jellyfish Restaurant and Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce, but generally has involvement from the entire Perdido Key Community. A portion of ticket proceeds go to Purple Heart Homes, nonprofit founded by Veterans for Veterans, which has the singular mission of making life easier for service connected disabled Veterans by modifying, adapting or building on existing homes to ensure greater mobility. There will be live music from favorite local bands all day with intermittent announcements for raffles and giveaways. The Kyle Parker Band will be taking the main stage with special guests playing throughout the rest of the location. No festival would be complete without great food. The Jellyfish Restaurant will be serving up different types of food throughout the festival so there’s no need to leave the location.
